H3 iran nuclear deal

The New York Times is reporting that President Trump will again stop short of reimposing harsh sanctions on Iran over the country’s nuclear industry, while imposing new sanctions over the country’s ballistic missile program. The report comes as Trump faces a deadline today on whether to certify that Iran is complying with a landmark 2015 nuclear deal. The deal was signed by a number of European countries, all of whom are urging President Trump to remain in the agreement. During the campaign, Trump repeatedly said he’d withdraw from the Iran nuclear agreement, calling it the “worst deal ever.”
